Motorola launches FOMA M1000 smartphone with integrated 3G and wireless LAN
Motorola Inc has launched the FOMA M1000, a Symbian UIQ based smartphone with WLAN (IEEE 802.11b Wireless LAN), WCDMA (3G UMTS)and GSM/GPRS. The new mobile device was developed jointly by Motorola and NTT DoCoMo.

The new handset is modeled on Motorola's 3G A1000, and will be available in Japan from 1 July 2005 through NTT DoCoMo channels.

"This is a breakthrough for the Japanese market because this goes beyond what was available to consumers here in the past. The fact they can now have 3G, business applications and multi-media functions makes this truly a seamless mobile experience and something Japanese consumers have been waiting for" said Michael Tatelman, Vice President and General Manager of Motorola Mobile Devices Business in North Asia.

According to the press information, the FOMA M1000 is designed to attract today's increasingly mobile consumers who want connectivity with their workplace, their home, on the road and at play using one device.

The FOMA M1000 provides features such as international roaming, full Internet browsing and high-quality voice and video communications, as well as the capability to send/receive e-mails to multiple addresses with attached files and viewer for major documents fomats such as Microsoft Word and Excel and Adobe Acrobate (PDF). The handset is also Bluetooth-enabled and comes with Personal Information Manager (PIM) software. Users can add applications from a library of software targeting Symbian devices.

The handset also comes with IPsec VPN (movian VPN 4.0) built-in, and a 32MB TransFlash memory card. Multimedia formats supported include MPEG4, H.263, WMV ver.8, MP3, AMR, WMA ver.8, and MIDI.
